Few have even come close to gaining 1,000 yards in a season for three teams

Tailbacks Travis Henry and Reuben Droughns are two of 30 NFL or AFL backs to have rushed for 1,000 yards for two teams. This season both will try to pass the milestone with a third team: Henry (right) with the Broncos and Droughns with the Giants. If either does it—Droughns, slated as a backup, seems a long shot; Henry, featured in Denver, seems a good bet he will go where only one man has gone before. Of the 11 players to join a third team after gaining 1,000-plus yards with two others only those listed above have gone on to top even 200 yards in a season.

Ricky Watters
Seahawks, 2000 ? 1,242 yds.

Terry Allen
Patriots, 1999 ? 896 yds.

Eric Dickerson
Raiders, '92 ? 729 yds.

Antowain Smith
Saints, '05 ? 659 yds.

Earnest Byner
Ravens, '96 ? 634 yds.
